On Nov. 28, 2023, Nishimura & Asahi (GKJ)’s Legal Education Team supported an inquiry-based cross-disciplinary study session for 2nd year students at Saitama Prefectural Urawa Girls' Upper Secondary School in Japan.
Participants from N&A included Shigeru Sasaki, Rasa Kato, Yusuke Mizuno , staff members who are all alumni of the school, Asako Joba (D&I Promotion Div.), etc.
We hope that the session will help the students enhance their learning  and help increase the number of women who aim become legal professionals in Japan.
